putting on human flesh

The sacrifice of Christmas
God descending as a man
taking off eternity
and putting on mortal flesh

More than the sacrifice
the choosing of the cross
this was what really cost
letting go of his power

Christ piercing the curtain
his place in heaven above
choosing the manger, the cross
the journey with us here below
